Ever since my early childhood on the island of Malta, I have loved being near, on, or in the water. I spent most of my life in the Muskoka and Kawartha Lakes regions of southern Ontario: boating, swimming, waterskiing, windsurfing, and sailing (a 16' cat). We moved to the west coast in 2006 to sail a bigger boat and have since sailed over 7,500 nautical miles (13,900 kms) in these waters. I am Transport Canada certified and have taken (literally) hundreds of people sailing in Georgia Strait, Howe Sound, and the Gulf Islands... and I would love to take you sailing as well !
